We Come

A creative expression of Binghampton United Methodist Church
An original poem by Kory N. Turner, Shalom Intern

Sometimes broken, sometimes weary
But we come
Binghampton United Methodist Church

Sharing the value of the human experience
We come

We come bringing our gifts with prayers we lift
Our hearts to one another

Laying aside our titles, moving beyond our age, gender, race, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status,
We come.

We are brothers and sisters in Christ
Striving together to do God’s will

We come
Breaking through the darkness
Acknowledging the light that’s deep within each of us

Binghampton United Methodist Church
We come
With hearts full of love, forgiveness, reconciliation, and healing

We come and we gather at the table
For a love feast that binds us
Together as one

We come
So that ALL
Might be able to come
